Oakland school shooting: police identify gunman (4 PICS)


Goh surrendered at a supermarket in nearby Alameda city after allegedly opening fire in a classroom, killing seven people and injuring three others.

Oakland police chief Howard Jordan identifies the suspect as One L Goh after seven people were killed and three more were injured at a small Christian university in California.

Speaking at a news conference Oakland police chief Howard Jordan identified the suspect in the shooting who is believed to be a former student and an Oakland resident.

"Preliminary investigation led to the identity of the suspect. 43-year old One L Goh.... His description [led us to believe] that he had fled the area most likely before the first officers arrived," Mr Jordan said.

He added that the shooter, who opened fire in a classroom at Oikos University, appeared to have acted alone and was now in police custody.

The police chief said that it would still take a few days to investigate the shooting and find out a motive. But he described a violent scene from the shooting.

"Officers found several victims throughout the classroom, throughout the building," he said.

"There were several people hiding in locked buildings, locked doors behind desks, as you can imagine, very frightened, very scared.

"Some of them were injured so we had to rescue them out. We had to force our way into a number of rooms."

Oikos University is a private Christian college offering courses in theology, music and nursing.
